First, let me state for the record that this endorsement was in no way influenced by the free turbo charger, sent to me by Moped Warehouse, which boosted the speed of my ped to 72 MPH.

Last Saturday, having determined that my 78 Motobecane Model 7 had a bad ignition condensor, I got on the Moped Junkyard site and found a new one for $19.95. This price irked me a bit but I figured I would save time and aggravation so I began the order process. I enterd the part in the order form and was then instructed to enter a $5.00 handling charge. This did not seem too bad until I got to the end of the form where I was to agree to have my total deducted from my credit card plus shipping. Now I was looking at close to a $30.00 ignition capacitor.

Being a cheapskate, I bailed and because I have seen helpfull posts on this forum from them, I tried the mopedwarehouse.com. I sent them an email request for quote, then went back to the garage and successfully spliced a Honda condensor into the wiring harness.

On monday morning, I got a reply from Moped Warehouse offering me an original square condensor, with an explaination that it was more reliable than the round one, for $15.00 plus shipping. I replied with the following:

"Thanks for the info, I spliced a Honda cap into the wiring harness over the

weekend, but if the points start to burn I will get back to you with an

order."

Today, I received this reply:

"Ok sounds good . The world needs more creative people.

Chris"

I think Cris is the guy who has been posting to this forum. The interesting thing about his posts are that most of them are strictly trying to help with a problem by sharing his knowledge, not trying to sell something.

As I said, I like these guys. If you need parts, give them a chance to quote. That way I do not have to feel so guilty for making them look up a part and then not buying it!
